Taqiyya is a religious obligation to protect Islam from scrutiny. Taqiyya involves dissimulation, lying, deceiving, vexing and confounding with the intention of deflecting attention, foiling or pre-emptive blocking. It is currently employed in fending off and neutralising any criticism of Islam or Muslims.
MSU spokeswoman: Muslim supporters of jihad “did not cite Quranic verses or Islamic teachings in their support of such terrorist acts”
And there are other lies from Hussam Ayloush of CAIR’s Greater Los Angeles office, one of the more arrogant and obnoxious CAIR spokesmen — and among that unsavory bunch, that is quite a distinction. “Islam: Dispelling the myths,” from theÂ Great Falls Tribune, June 27 via Jihad Watch:
Part of Islamic teachings is mutual respect and acceptance, according to Hussam Ayloush, a speaker at the Islam in America symposium in Bozeman in February and a Muslim-American from Anaheim, Calif. […]Ayloush explained that al-Qaida is so unwanted in Muslim countries the terrorist organization must hide. “Eight out of 10 victims (of al-Qaida) are Muslim,” he said. “Every political leader has spoken out against (them).”
We beg to differ.
Yes, that’s why they’re on the ropes everywhere, particularly in Pakistan. Note also that Islamic law forbids a Muslim to kill another Muslim intentionally (cf. Qur’an 4:92), and so when al-Qaeda does kill fellow Muslims, that’s when they arouse ire within the Muslim community. No such ire is seen when they kill non-Muslims.
Terrorists are perceived unfavorably by the majority of Muslims, MSU graduate Raima Amin said.”It’s a common misconception that Muslims condone terrorism, but in reality the majority of Muslims are peace-loving citizens who hate such acts, especially when they are wrongfully associated with Islam,” she said.
I’m sure most Germans were also peace loving, but they still followed Hitler. And Hitler loved German Shepherds….
A recent Gallup poll, which surveyed 50,000 Muslims in 35 countries, showed that only 7 percent supported the Sept. 11 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.
“What was more surprising to many, was that among this 7 percent ‘extremist’ population, the majority cited their hatred of the U.S. on disagreement with political ideologies, U.S. foreign policies towards Israel, etc.,” Amin said. “They did not cite Quranic verses or Islamic teachings in their support of such terrorist acts. This further proves that Islam can in no way rightfully be associated with violence, terrorism or other harmful actions.”
Maybe those surveyed in the poll didn’t cite Qur’anic verses, but it is unclear whether the poll was even set up in such a way that would have allowed them to do so rather than like most polls, which only allow a choice between a few predetermined options. In any case, Amin is being plainly deceptive here, since so many Islamic jihadists can and do cite the Qur’an to justify their actions. See, to take just a few of many, many available examples,Â here andÂ here — oh, andÂ here.
And so it goes. Amid some shopworn detours and moral equivalence, there is this:
“Jihad” is a term used to describe “inner struggle” and striving for the sake of God, according to Ayloush. It is “not holy war,” Ayloush stresses….
Misunderstanders of Islam at al-Azhar University in Cairo, the most prestigious institution in Sunni Islam: a manual of Islamic law that was certified in 1991 by the clerics at Al-Azhar as a reliable guide to Sunni orthodoxy, says that “Jihad means to war against non-Muslims” (‘Umdat al-Salik, o9.0).
Kia said Muslim students at UM hail from Morocco, Turkey, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Malaysia and parts of Central Asia.Less than 20 percent of the 1.6 billion Muslims (according to a Pew study in 2009) in the world are Arab, Ayloush said. “It’s a religion,” he said. “Not an ethnicity.”
Not that that ever stops Islamic spokesmen in the West from playing the race card whenever they deem it useful.
Here’s what the Koran really says:
The Ouran tells the Muslims it is permissible to lie to infidels.
If you are not a Muslim, you are an infidel, a kafir harbi, a mushrikeen etc. Â The Quran teaches hatred and Muslims children are raised to believe all infidels must die:
Quran 4:89: “They (infidels) desire that you should disbelieve as they have disbelieved, so that you might be (all) alike; therefore take not from among them friends until they fly (their homes) in Allah’s way; but if they turn back, then seize them and kill them wherever you find them, and take not from among them a friend or a helper.”
Quran 8:12:Â “Instill terror into the hearts of the unbelievers;”
Quran 2:191: “… kill the disbelievers wherever we find them …”
Quran 22:19-22: “… for them (the unbelievers) garments of fire shall be cut and there shall be poured over their heads boiling water whereby whatever is in their bowels and skin shall be dissolved and they will be punished with hooked iron rods.”
Quran 8:12: “Your Lord inspired the angels with the message:Â ‘I will terrorize the unbelievers. Therefore smite them on their necks and every joint and incapacitate them. Strike off their heads and cut off each of their fingers and toes.’”
Quran 8:7: “Allah wished to confirm the truth by His words: ‘Wipe the infidels out to the last.’”
Quran 8:59: “The infidels should not think that they can get away from us. Prepare against them whatever arms and weaponry you can muster so that you may terrorize them.Â They are your enemy and Allah’s enemy.”
Quran 8:60: “Prepare against them whatever arms and cavalry you can muster that you may strike terror in the enemies of Allah, and others besides them not known to you.”
Quran 9.29? “Fight those who do not believe in Allah, nor in the latter day, nor do they prohibit what Allah and His Apostle have prohibited, nor follow the religion of truth, out of those who have been given the Book, until they pay the tax in acknowledgment of superiority and they are in a state of subjection.”
Quran 47:4:Â “Strike off the heads of the disbelievers” and, after making a“wide slaughter among them, carefully tie up the remaining captives.”
Hadith Sahih Muslim (41:6985): “Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying:Â ‘The last hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews and the Muslims would kill them until the Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would say: Muslim, the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him; but the tree Gharqad would not say, for it is the tree of the Jews.’”
Quran 9:5: “When the sacred forbidden months for fighting are past, fight and kill the disbelievers wherever you find them, take them captive, torture them, and lie in wait and ambush them using every stratagem of war.”
Sura 3:151: “Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts of the unbelievers for that they joined companions with Allah for which He had sent no authority: their abode will be the fire; and evil is the home of the wrong-doers!”
Sura 8:60: “Against them make ready your strength to the utmost of your powerincluding steeds of war to strike terror into (the hearts of) the enemies of Allah and your enemies and others besides whom ye may not know but whom Allah doth know. Whatever ye shall spend in the cause of Allah shall be repaid unto you and ye shall not be treated unjustly.”
Tabari IX:113: “Allah permits you to shut them (women) in separate rooms and to beat them, but not severely. If they abstain, they have the right to food and clothing.Â Treat women well for they are like domestic animals and they possess nothing themselves. Allah has made the enjoyment of their bodies lawful in his Quran.”
Tabari I:280: “Allah said, ‘It is My obligation to make Eve bleed once every month as she made this tree bleed. I must also make Eve stupid, although I created her intelligent.’ Because Allah afflicted Eve,Â all of the women of this world menstruate and are stupid.”
Ishaq:327: “Allah said, ‘A prophet must slaughter before collecting captives.A slaughtered enemy is driven from the land. Muhammad, you craved the desires of this world, its goods and the ransom captives would bring. But Allah desires killing them to manifest the religion.’”
“And make ready against them all you can of power, including steeds of war (tanks, planes, missiles, artillery) to threaten the enemy of Allaah and your enemy”
Hence it is prescribed to fight in a manner that will strike terror into the heart of the enemy.
Does that sound like “inner struggle” to you?
